Those are very good sites, and i particularly like the National Family Caregivers Association site, which has a sister site called www.familycaregiving101.org.
I like these sites as well:
www.StrengthForCaring.com, from the Johnson & Johson Foundation
www.caregiver.org, which is the Family Caregiver Alliance based in San Francisco (with translations in Spanish and Chinese!
For online video lessons on caregiving, there's the excellent www.caregivinghelp.org.
And i do believe that aarp's own sites related to caregiving are really good. there's the caregiving home page at www.aarp.org/caregiving and then there's the caregiving "module" which is located at www.aarp.org/caregivers. That's where there are videos, checklists, tools and information that's pretty well organized. Its an impressive offering (and i had nothing to do with it! :-) )
I think everyone should check out the 20 minute video on Living with Herbie on the aarp site, which is very honest and heart-wrenching. At least i found it so.
There's the Eldercare Locator, funded by our tax dollars, at www.eldercare.gov.
There's www.lotsahelpinghands.com, which can't be beat for organizing practical support (like meals and transportation) around a person needing help. I'm using it with my brother in law on behalf of my sister who's now undergoing some ghastly chemotherapy. she has 3 kids at home! eek!
This is a great thread idea! Let's see what other folks come up with!
Also www.wellspouse.org - self help support group
